Safeguarding

Safeguarding and child protection are as important now as they ever have been. With lockdowns, tier systems and social distancing measures in place across the UK, it’s difficult for adults to keep in regular contact with children and check on their welfare.
Please refer to the following to assist:

1. Here is an NSPCC link to Helping you support children during the COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns: https://learning.nspcc.org.uk/safeguarding-child-protection/coronavirus?...

2. The FA have produced guidance on keeping Children safe in the Digital world: https://www.thefa.com/football-rules-governance/safeguarding/section-6-s...

3. Please ensure that all clubs have their safeguarding policies and procedures up to date. Here is a link to look through to see all of these, they are editable and so can be adapted for your club: https://www.thefa.com/football-rules-governance/safeguarding/section-11-...

4. Please watch and share this video: https://youtu.be/4rUoMjgy_70 - it’s 8 minutes long and it’s called ‘Let’s keep children safe in football.’
